.UPDATE...
Widespread rain continues just west of a surface trough axis
extending from central Louisiana to central Arkansas. Rainfall
seems driven by a low-level disturbance in westerly flow that 
will continue to translate southeast through the overnight hours 
allowing for rain to overspread the remainder of the ArkLaTex by 
daybreak. Current forecast seems to reflect this thinking fairly 
well. Temperatures across southeast Oklahoma will likely settle 
around current values in the mid 50s with the remainder of the 
region expected to fall into the upper 50s to lower 60s. /05/
